ARTCRUSH

…so excited to announce that we’ve secured a new space in Red Hook, NY at The Soap Factory as we continue the OVO journey. When ready, this space will serve as a studio for our resident artist Richard Marr, and as a gallery. In addition to the Red Hook space, we are getting close to breaking ground in Rhinebeck, NY. The Rhinebeck space (OVO Art Pavilion) will be used to mount public and private showings in The Village of Rhinebeck.

Check back here to follow our progress or follow OVO_edge on Instagram and Ovo EDGE on Facebook.

We continue to actively support the artists we love as well as those who have shown at OVO in SOMA .

They are:

AIDA JONES, ALVIN MCINTYRE, ANNE SUSSMAN, KIMBA BAKER, MICHAEL DAVID ADAMS, TERRI FRASER, VINCENT HAWLEY & VINCENT KUHN, FUMIKO SUGAYA and JILL HERLANDS.

Navigate through the menu above and click on MEET THE ARTISTS to connect with their personal sites. If you do not see a site for a particular artist, feel free to contact me. I am happy to connect you with their work.

And…consider this:

"The real question that we need to keep in mind is how does any person's love of art affect his or her attitude towards human beings? All too often reverence for the divine Mozart or a heavenly Vermeer tends to reduce the rest of us to interchangeable extras on life's stage; unimportant and quite expendable. This is a monstrous way to regard people. It is not what you paint on a piece of canvas...but what painting on a piece of canvas can do for you. Such focused acts of attention may, for instance, develop qualities of character like self-discipline, patience and delay of immediate gratification."

What Good Are The Arts? - John Carey

and this...

"There are also art experiences that happen in the space of life, with no art objects or art actions at all. They happen as lingering or reignited reflections on artworks seen in the past and later digested...maybe much later, outside the exhibition time frame."
